Manchester United host Manchester City in the Premier League this Saturday in what is one of the most intriguing Manchester derbies in recent seasons. The Red Devils are playing a lot better than they have been in recent seasons, while Pep Guardiola‘s City are five points off early leaders Arsenal and in a tough spell by their high standards.
Erik ten Hag will no doubt want to see more from his side in this derby after their humiliating 6-3 loss to City at the Etihad Stadium back in October, and recent form suggests that he might just. United have lost just one of their last 18 competitive games, which came back in early November.
Manchester United vs Manchester City predicted line-ups
With Donny van de Beek and Axel Tuanzebe out, both Diogo Dalot and Jadon Sancho are doubts. With Wout Weghorst set to join, it’s unlikely that he’ll be registered in time to feature in the early kick-off.
City will have to do without the absent Ruben Dias, although John Stones should return to Guardiola‘s XI at Old Trafford.
Manchester United predicted XI: De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Shaw; Casemiro, Eriksen; Antony, Fernandes, Rashford; Martial
Manchester City predicted XI: Ederson; Walker, Stones, Akanji, Ake; De Bruyne, Rodri, Bernardo; Mahrez, Haaland, Grealish.
